Gold Rush again led Friday cable though heading towards Christmas was down sharply (0.6 points) vs. last week to  a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating. A repeat of the movie 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas" on ABC Family was close behind with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating from 8-10p.

Tyler Perry's 'For Better Or Worse' each were down a tenth from last week's ratings to 0.8 and 0.9 adults 18-49 ratings respectively.

Flying Wild Alaska was down a tenth vs. last week with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Friday Night Smackdown was down two tenths to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating and Sanctuary was up a tenth to a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

Update via @TVBill: HBO's Life and Times of Tim rose to a 0.1 adults 18-49 rating (last week a 0.0) and 131,000 viewers.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our primary source. If you don’t see an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in the top 100. I attempt to filter out repeats, kids shows, and most non-primetime shows. Will add extras that I see later.
